Oh, Goodie! Feb. 1, 2013 is World Hijab (headbag) Day

hillary-in-blue-hijab-300x205Hey, all you infidel whores, pour yourself your favorite alcoholic beverage, grab the nearest garbage bag, potato sack, curtain, or your favorite colorful schmatta (rag), and wrap it around your head to show your solidarity with the genitally mutilated, oppressed women of the Muslim world.

World Hijab Day  (h/t Michael T) calls on non-Muslim women to try out life under the traditional head scarf. Can it lead to more religious tolerance and understanding?

Oppressed! Subjugated! These are probably the words that come to your mind when you see a Muslim woman covered in Hijab (Headbag)  – the Islamic modest covering of a woman. You assume it’s her father or some radical male member from her family who is forcing her to dress that way. At least that is what people say to you. That is how the media views Muslim women who cover. Let me ask you, have you heard of the famous sayings: “go straight to the source?” Or “walk a day in my shoes?” I am sure you have heard these a million times. 

stacks_image_44-e1359750443788 Let me use the first. I ask you sincerely, have you ever gone to the true source for information about Hijab and Islam?  Have you read books, asked scholars or visited a Mosque? Have you ever asked a Muslim woman why she is so covered in a world that seeks to shed as much clothing as possible?  If you asked a Muslim woman, she would inform you that the purpose behind her Hijab is to obey her Creator over the creation. Her Creator, Allah (God), did not legislate Hijab in order to oppress her, but rather to free her from the shackles of this world. He ordered Hijab as an honor and sign of dignity for women. 

World Hijab Day 1 When a Muslim woman covers her hair, chest and body, she is sending a silent message that she respects her body and like a pearl in the ocean, she covers it with her beautiful shell (Hijab). No one has the right to observe, gawk at and judge a Muslim woman by the highlights in her hair or curves on her body. Instead they judge her for what is in her mind, her character, and her goals and ambitions.  Hijab is prevention from being accosted by ignorant minds who only judge a woman by the clothes she wears and the skin she shows. A woman’s body as you know is sacred and this is why Islam encourages women to strive to cover and protect it.

523228_482555428434871_1052589592_n Let us return to the second saying, “Walk a day in my shoes.” This is where WHD comes in. What is that you ask? WHD is short for World Hijab Day. This first time annual event will be held on February 1st, 2013 (God willing). On this day, we ask Non-Muslim and Non-Hijabi Muslim women worldwide to observe Hijab for a day. It will be a day for everyone willing to experience what it’s like to step inside the shoes of a Hijabi. Our hopes are no less than that. We wish you will gain a wealth of knowledge and experience a slightly different definition of FREEDOM. 

stacks_image_13My name is Ela. I am seventeen years old. I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab. So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through. 

stacks_image_11My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall. Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack. Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us. Not today. People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us. They didn’t talk to us. They acted like we didn’t exist. They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all. 

And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists. She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything. I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice. However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget. The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store. 

564253_323565771073524_1782320741_n-e1359750646751

All that because I put a scarf on my head. Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil. It didn’t matter that I was a nice person. All that mattered was that I looked different. That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing. 

This experiment gave me a huge wake-up call. It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day. It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim.”

A much more interesting take on World Hijab Day comes from Maryam Namazie, Spokesperson of the One Law for All Campaign against Sharia Law in Britain, the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and Equal Rights Now – Organisation against Women’s Discrimination in Iran.

Today is World Hijab Day! What next?

Maybe we can all try to mutilate our daughters on World Mutilation Day or marry off our girls on World Child Marriages Day? How about a day when our male guardians can track our whereaboutsto make sure we aren’t leaving the country.

I know adult women have a right to wear the hijab (given the threats and compulsory nature of it in most places – this is very often just a formality but nonetheless) but to ask others to wear it is a tad absurd – if I’m being polite.

I am sorry but I don’t think I am the cause of fitna/chaos in the world and therefore find the veil abhorrent.

So here is my tribute to the hijab:

  1. i cannot believe this. We muslim girls and woman DO NOT wear “slave dress” we wear the jilbab of our own will. we wear the hijab of our own will i wear the hijab but do not wear jilbab or cover my face. so what? i’m still a muslim. Also Yes some muslims send a horrible message to the world about islam that we are all terrorists blah blah. well listen carefully please. people who do all these terrorism acts and harm others cant be muslims. islam means peace and the musims who dont follow that rule are not muslims and shoudnt be classed as muslims. heres a example ” if you had a basket of apples and some were bruised you woudnt throw them all away ..would you” as in if some “muslims”are doing terrorist acts and harming people does NOT mean that all muslims will be terrorists and harm people. Almost all the comments i have read are racist. that makes me feel scared and sad and angry. Even when i walk out the door for school i’m scared of the name calling i get. please think when speaking or typing;) I respect all religions even if other so called “muslims” dont. thank you ! ;))))))

      • And the bagheaded supremacist comes out of the gates with a big fat lie!

        islam does not meant peace. It means submission.

        We’re not all terrorists blah, blah, blah, but we’ll deride, harass, harangue and call racists all victims of mohammadan supremacists and those who point out the atrocities of mohammdan supremacists instead of harassing, haranguing and deriding the violent mohammadan supremacists!

        We are the supremacist baghead gang! Hears us screech like banshees!

        Screw you you cupid stunt.

        Hey, toots, how about I do to you what two of your co-cultists (whom you would never screech at like you just screeched here) did to an off duty soldier in London?

        Would it be alright for people to shout at your family that “not all atheists are killers like her! You’re a racist for getting angry at the ideology she espoused while sawing your head off!”?

        Hmh?

        Didn’t think so.

        Thanks for demonstrating, yet again, what egregious assholes *ALL* of you mohammadan supremacists are.

    • And another thing you vile baghead:

      Sofaking sick of the apples analogy. It is false.

      Some of the apples may be bruised but *THEY ARE STILL APPLES.*

      Hard jihadis or soft jihadis (like you) are all still jihadis for mo’s mad bronze age cult.

      And you’re afraid of the *NAME CALLING*” You egregious, self-centered, metricious c*nt? Your non-mohammadan neighbors have to fear being *killed* by your more pro-active co-cultists. They have to fear sharia law encroaching on their inherent rights. They have to fear being raped by your co-cultists who emulate your putrid prophet.

      How *dare* you whine about being called names you vile, evil, digsusting c*nt. When non-mohammadans are being raped, murdered and terrorized, daily, by your co-cultist as per your f*cking sharia, how *DARE* you falsely claim to be a victim. You are no different than those two converted assholes who murdered the soldier in England.

      You respect nothing but your own foul hubris and bronze age desert cult. This false victimhood, this hubris, this attacking and chiding victims of your co-cultists is why you are hated. You’re not hated because they emmulate mo. You are hated because you blow smoke for them.

      And another thing you f*cking evil c*nt: It’s not your “race” that people disagree with. It’s the cult that encourages the subjugation and murder of those who don’t belong to your foul creed that they hate. They hate your propaganda. They hate your supremacism. They hate your displays of your self-perceived supremacy (hijab). They would hate you if you were a paki an arab or a big fat white converted whore. So, no, you vicious c*nt, they are not calling you “racist” names. Unless, of course, if they are spot on and and calling you a racist.

      @BNI I didn’t read this evil cunt’s whole post until after I posted my first reply. I’d better stop now. It’s a good thing I don’t run into these kind of monsters claiming victimhood. I’d teach them what victimhood really means.

      • I believe a lot of us are in the mood. Have been for a while.

        After the slaughter of Lee Rigby I’ve been ready to go off. Most notably on the dhimmi enablers who are whinging and whining about “backlash” against those “poor victimized” mohammadan supremacists.

        Any one, media personality, politician, Joe Blow citizen who makes excuses for or complains about non-existent backlash is a criminal.

        Offfffffff…I need to go let off some steam.

    • DragonfFIRE01,

      I second that. I will never wear one either.

      I call them slave outfits, because that is exactly what they are.

      Signifers that indicate a subversive societal position.

  2. The bag does mean they are growing and teaching their children to be terrorists!

    As far as having to cover themselves, what do you expect from? Knuckle dragging, emotional and mental retards, genetically challenged, Troglodytes. These homosexuals cannot bear to see a woman without remembering how much they hate women. So, they must demean and destroy the image of women, by raping and proving their superiority.

  3. I could not post on their facebook wall one single word negative. Now I can’t post at all, they scrubbed me. I don’t care, but what really pisses me off is when I see young American woman allow themselves to be fooled this way. They could give a shit what woman in this country went through for womans rights. They are taking us backward and what nerve to ignore the pains woman in the west had to go through to become an equal to men. These savage idiot woman are lacking vitamin D and it’s wreaking havoc all over the world. This is all about ‘Misery loves company’!

  4. Eal, you missed the point entirely. Why don’t you try another test. Go to an Islamic country and wear a Cross and see what will happen to you. Muslims are treated exceptionally great in our countries, bearing in mind what they think of us and what they wish to do to us. Wake up and inform yourself, read the Koran.

  5. Hijab results from Umar hassling Sauda when she went into the desert to take a shit at night. Doubt me?

    Volume 8, Book 74, Number 257:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    (the wife of the Prophet) ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Apostle “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam’a went out and she was a tall woman. ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, “I have recognized you, O Sauda!” He (‘Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes). (See Hadith No. 148, Vol. 1)

    http://www.muslimaccess.com/sunnah/hadeeth/bukhari/074.html#008.074.257
    ——————————————————————————–

    Volume 1, Book 4, Number 148:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    The wives of the Prophet used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. ‘Umar used to say to the Prophet “Let your wives be veiled,” but Allah’s Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam’a the wife of the Prophet went out at ‘Isha’ time and she was a tall lady. ‘Umar addressed her and said, “I have recognized you, O Sauda.” He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of “Al-Hijab” (A complete body cover excluding the eyes).

    http://www.muslimaccess.com/sunnah/hadeeth/bukhari/004.html#001.004.148

    33:59. O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e.screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

  6. Dear BNI:

    Celebrate wearing a hijab? Really now? If you did you would also be celebrating…

    A woman being worth 1/3 of a man in a muslim (sharia) court. So, how is 1/3 of a testimony divided up? Which “third” do you listen to if your a sharia judge?

    Women not being allowed to drive or travel any distance from her male relatives without this new GPS-monitor-islamic women’s movement-bullshit.

    Women being beaten, harassed, intimidated, raped and sexually enslaved.

    Girls being denied education and medical care. Having a vagina equals not being allowed to read or have access to a doctor.

    Mothers who give their children a life consumed by obssessive hatreds of non-muslims.

    …. and of course lets celebrate IF YOU DON’T WEAR A HIJAB….

    you can be a terrified schoolgirl whose lungs are filling with acrid smoke as you gag and begin to vomit, your eyes in intense pain as your vision is clouded and then of course you can’t stop screaming as your body catches fire….

    after all your school building is burning down and muslim clergy the “wise” and “devout” imans block the exits not letting little girls out, trapping them indoors because they are not wearing said hijab.

    Its better for little 8 year old girls to be charred corpses for not wearing hijabs as opposed to being seen outside of a burning building with no head gear. After all as these children with burns on their bodies and wisps of smoke coming from their uncovered hair would be OBJECTS OF SEXUAL DESIRE by such wise imans. Yep, don’t let girls out of a burning building because their seriously burned bodies laying on pavements (if you would let them out) would entice koran scholars!

    Every non-muslim who participated in this disgraceful day needs to wear their “hijab of cultural understanding” in Afghanistan or dropped off in downtown Mecca or in rural Pakistan. AND any man who feels a woman needs to covered from head to toe in burkhas or … “he can’t control his sexual urges” is a total animalistic monster and needs his wanker chopped off.

    P.S. Istanbul Chick… yours was a totally awesome post.

  7. If the burqa is abominable, being fully naked like animals is equally abominable. MODERATION MAN MODERATION!! at least the normal hijab looks respectable.

  8. Muslim women who support the hijab are all brainwashed. A number of decades ago, muslim women didn’t wear the burka and hijab, but dressed fashionably. The wearing of the burka and hijab do not have anything to do with Islam. Just like rape, it is all about muslim men’s control over women. Muslim women wear the hijab out of fear or because they are brainwashed to the point where they actually believe their bodies should be covered because it is an honour and sign of dignity. No, it just shows the world that you are controlled through fear – the fear of the sight of your skin or hair could cause a man to rape you.

  9. I don’t wear a hijab and I don’t think “evil eyes” are looking at me.
    They’re paranoid.
    Western women struggled for centuries to finally be free of discrimination, and the oppression symbolized by the hijab, and now we are expected to support and identify with these
    brainwashed dopes who crow about how free they are with a hijab
    on. In the words of Winston Churchill “no stronger retrograde force exists in the world” than Islam.

  10. I truly appreciate all of the insightful comments from all of the real women writers about what the bag wearers are all about. Wearing a bag says I am not about integration and I am better than you in some twisted logic of inbred thinking. Thank God for wonderful, free and free thinking assertive women of the world.

  11. ” Hijab is prevention from being accosted by ignorant minds who only judge a woman by the clothes she wears and the skin she shows.”

    Uh, the only ignorant minds accosting anybody are encased in Muslim skulls.

  12. All those wrappings create sensory deprivation. Everything is slightly off kilter, when all is diminished, you get less cognition. They sell it as ‘modesty’. Not by western/modernity standards.

  13. Words like: “grab the nearest garbage bag” may seem to be uttered or written jokingly. However, there is a bitter truth behind them. I have been told by a young boy who lived in Saudi-Arabia with his German parents that in Saudi there are indeed poor women who walk around in the heat covered in black garbage bags because they have to cover themselves and cannot afford real fabric. The boy felt very sorry for them.

  14. I am sure if it were the late 1930s and 1940s, wearing a hitler youth uniform would probably produce the same jeers. muslims have brought all the hate against them on themselves.

  15. Maybe if more women in the West wore the hijab, and then got their asses beat for not wearing it, then women all over the world would protest the hijab, jilbab, niqab, and burqa.

    OK women, wear the hijab and spend time in an Islamic country where it is not a choice. You wear it, or you get beaten. I wonder how many women would support wearing it then?

  16. She is a lot braver than I am to pose nude. I had enough experience wearing hijab- tyvm! I don’t believe the story about the girl who wore one either. Kids were scared of me and adults pointed and snickered. Sales people didn’t ignore me but followed me around asking me nuisance questions. About the kid asking if she were a terrorist- my daughter saw a lady wearing a hijab and said she was wearing a hat. Granted I wore hijab in the early 90’s and unfortunately there are more hijab wearers now so people might associate them with terrorists rather than nuns- which is what everyone thought I was.

  17. and by the way BNI want to thank you for all these new ways to communicate with the women folk ! especially while I am setin around waitin for my broke leg to heal up

      • was standing on a hay fork on the buck rake takein down her dam xmas lites ! me and the ground met from about 15 ft apart ! doc says he can cut me loose around first of march , me and the little lady are in the stand off stage ! after 40 years of practice with her I know the danger signs well ! she at the low mumbling part something to the effect of dam ol fool near as i can tell

      • no mrs BNI after giveing it some thought think will delay that message it may compromise my position if she misinterpreted your support , least she turn that sharp mind and tongue me

  18. Muslim declaration: “A woman’s body as you know is sacred”.
    Oh, how hundreds of millions of us wish this was how Islam believed about women and children. Alas, it is a TERRIBLE LIE. Will Muslim lies ever stop?

    • Thanks for that vid, Linda. I absolutely love Douglas Murray. He’s a powerful and refreshingly frank speaker on the subject of mohammadans and their bassackwards “culture.”

  19. told my wife and daughters and some other females sitin in the kitchen drinking tea about this great opportunity to express them self’s !! they universally flipped me the bird !!!

  20. No thank you! I would much prefer a ‘World FREEDOM for ALL People Day’, and a ‘World HUMAN RIGHTS for ALL People’ Day’. That is our beautiful Western civilization! The total opposite of Islam and sharia law!

    God did NOT create the female human body that it is so shameful that EVERY INCH must be covered up! It is very scary that anyone would think such a thing!

    • It was the opposite..Surely you did not study Islam before you wrote this..Islam ask female muslim to wear hijab and cover their body because they are most valuable.Mind if I ask you to put all your jewellery on the road openly?or maybe you should put on all your precious item on the open area?would you normally do that?or you will keep all precious item in your vault or bank.even money in your wallet you keep it hidden from others,right?still want to say female are shameful?think wisely before u speak/write…If you dont know about us(Muslim) just shut-up and mind your own business!!!

  21. The hijabis may not be terrorists, but they are supremacists who wear the slave rags of bronze age Arab-tribalism to declare to the world that they are better than them.

    The psychology is the same as cupcakes who wear expensive designer clothes.

    They are no different than kkk members and their bedsheets.

    Their supremacy is evidenced by the fact that we don’t have World Crucifix/Yarmulke/Toga/Turban/etc Days.

    They don’t wear their Bronze age Arab-tribalism slave rags out of modesty. They wear them in a blatant and pathetic desire for attention.

    That they are unpleasant supremacist b!tches is on them, not on the alleged “islamophobes.”

    As for the naive and maddeningly smug little twerp who became a hijabi for a day, I doubt very much that it occurred to her progressive-damaged intellect that perhaps no one approached her is because they’ve had dealings in the past with actual supremacist hijabis.

    A quick glance at any of the “islamophobic” sites would show Pollyanna Bleedingheart a bevy of news stories of infidels who extended, foolishly, kindness or assistance to hijabis only to have their good deeds punished by accusations of racism, bigotry, intolerance, and litigation jihad.

    No one offered them food because no one wanted to have shrill little supremacist b!tches aggressively turning the offer of food into a “hate crime.” If they don’t offer food because the infidels know it’s not “halal” they’re racists. If they do the hijabi supremacists will have CAIR on them like flies on crap for the “hate crime” of offering them infidel najis haram food.

    Male clerks too face the damned if they do and damned if they don’t pickle. If they don’t it’s islamophobia. If they do the hijabi supremacists may just scream “racism” because unrelated men (especially najis kaffir) cannot approach them.

    Of course, this little cupcake, and her hijabi supremacist pals would never dream of blaming kaffirs’ reluctance to engage them on the precedents set time and time again by their co-supremacists.

    Little Miss Bleedingheart would have been quite shocked had that “racist” mother with her young child been my 5 year old niece and myself. I would not have called her a terrorist. I would have told my niece “She’s a supremacist who believes you, I, and all other women who don’t believe we are walking vaginas, who don’t believe in her sky fairy and bronze age Arab-tribalism are whores who are beneath her. She is a bigot who believes her chosen ideology of racism is superior to everyone and everything. She’s a sad attention seeking racist who insists on broadcasting her racism by wearing that scarf, just like the KKK broadcast theirs by wearing their white sheets. She is a bad person, but she’s not a terrorist. She’s a liar, a propagandist, a bully, a racist, and an attention-whore.”

    Then I would have given her a smug smile instead of a nasty look.

    Sofaking sick of islam and its supremacists. Sofaking tired of leftist useful idiots. Sofaking sick of the dhimmis who’ve been paid off to remain silent.Sofaking tired of the rest who really are islamophobes and stay silent out of fear.

    • Well said IC. That would have been the best reply to the bleeding heart idiot, because it would have made the idiot think and that would have been an impossible task for the attention whore.

  22. Saturday, February 2, 2013 – World Non-hijab day. Take off your hijab and experience the wind blowing gently through your hair. Enjoy the freedom of not being told what to do and when by some muslime pos. Experience true freedom, making your OWN decisions as to how you live and work. Break away from oppression. Enjoy not having people stare at you or look away or small children being afraid of you. Smile!!! Try this, you will most likely enjoy the freedom that you can feel from not being oppressed.
    Yes, I know this will never happen. Muslimes are one sided thinkers. it’s the pisslamic way or no way.

    • Dawn, April 1, april’s fool day or the 12th of never would be a great day for a wear a bag day. I liked your idea of a Free, non bag wearing day to enjoy real freedom.

    • Well..As a Muslim, We do all that because WE BELIEVE GOD IS EXIST!Do you even have a religion?Your Religion doesn’t have rule to guide you on your day-to-day basis?I pity you for that..At least we have our own way to respect god.Better than people who just break away ALL rule.Oh,now I know why non-muslim became criminal…because they dont have rule from their god!!

  23. Theres a story over on the daily mail bonnie victories secret employee has acid thrown in her face by attacker wearing nijab police unable to idendify assailent. Hillory looks like proper swine in her muzzie suit the bitch

  24. yeah, like it’d be a damn cold day in hell for me to put a bag on my head; why the hell would I even want to to do that, you idiots!! Good god, I’ve never heard of such stupidity! “National Bag Week???” Keep Banging!
